CBA Students Make National Waves

Two music students’ version of the World Cup song, Wavin’ Flag, has reached the top 10 of a national schools’ online chart.

Sereti Ogwang and Victoria Brooks recorded an arrangement of the World Cup anthem during Music Technology Club and uploaded it onto the Academy's online record label, Cobra Sounds.
In just one week, the track was listened to 227 times and it soon rocketed to the national top 10 for school recordings.
The web page, NUMU, is a national initiative where schools can sign up as a "record label" and then students upload their work.
It produces a chart based on the tracks with the most listens for each record label, as well as a national chart for the whole of NUMU.
Music Teacher Felicity Cornish said: "This is a huge achievement - the first CBA track ever to feature on the NUMU homepage and reflects the high quality of their arrangement and performance of the piece, which they had worked on during a music lesson.
"Lots of schools nationally are signed up to it, so it's really hard to get into the national top ten."
